Thanks for doing this. It is a very valuable resource. And I'll add my
name to the list of those wanting a searchable CDROM as well.

That's what I wanted to do with Glimpse (perl based). There are a number
of nice HTML front ends for this search engine...the only part would be
setting it up to operate locally. I'll check into it...though I haven't
received any interest in it whatsoever, so it's probably a moot point.

As far as searching, I hope to have everything configured and up this week
on the web for full searching of text/titles.
